About this product
- DescriptionMedical tribology can be defined as the science of tribological phemena in the human body, both those that naturally occur in the tissues or organs and those that arise after implantation of an artificial device, while biomaterials are inert substances designed to be incorporated into living systems. Biomaterials and medical tribology brings together a collection of high quality articles and case studies focussing on new research and developments in these two important fields. The book provides details of the different types of biomaterial available, including metals, polymers and composites, while chapters in the latter half offer an analysis of friction, wear, lubrication and other related issues in specific applications.
